ARAM BOGHOSIAN FOR THE BOSTON GLOBE/file
More excellent news for novelist Celeste Ng. The Cambridge resident, whose 2014 debut, “Everything I Never Told You,” has already been optioned for the big screen, announced on Twitter that her “delectable and engrossing” second novel, “Little Fires Everywhere,” will be turned into a series starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington.
“Hey, so, um, I have some news!” Ng wrote in a tweet linking to Deadline’s story about the deal.
The series, to be written by Liz Tigelaar, a writer-producer known for her work on “Casual” and “Life Unexpected,” is currently being pitched to premium and streaming networks, according to Deadline. An instant bestseller, “Little Fires Everywhere” is set in the late ’90s in Shaker Heights, Ohio, where Ng grew up, and tells the story of two families and how their lives collide.
Witherspoon tweeted a picture of herself with Washington, writing: “Y’all! I’m so excited to tell you that @kerrywashington and I will be bringing #LittleFiresEverywhere to the screen together ! I love this beautiful book about motherhood and I can’t wait to finally collaborate with one of my favorite actresses.”
